    "During the late evening of September 16, 2006, a tornado developed near Rogers, Minnesota. The tornado had an eight-mile long damage path across Hennepin and Anoka counties in eastern Minnesota. The Rogers tornado was rated F2 on the Fujita Scale (F0-F5 with F5 the strongest) resulting in one fatality and six injuries. Due to the fatality and injuries with this tornado and the unique nature of this storm, NOAA's NWS Central Region Headquarters formed a team to evaluate the overall performance of the Weather Forecast Office in Chanhassen which had warning responsibility for the area. Team members were from three NWS Regions and national headquarters. The findings and recommendations from this assessment are offered with the goal of improving the quality of warning and forecast products and services, and to enhance the knowledge of storm structure and warning techniques for the protection of life and property to the citizens of the United States."--Preface.
